Delayed onset of pain after a California car accident

When you are involved in a car accident, you might not suffer an injury, or you might suffer a serious injury that puts you out of work. An injury might not even present itself right away, and many people get worried about such a problem. What if you refuse medical treatment after an accident and then pain develops days later? Let's look at delayed onset of pain.

It is highly possible that your injury might not show itself in the minutes following a car accident. This is the biggest reason why you need to accept a medical evaluation provided on the scene by firefighters and EMTs who respond. They might recommend going to the hospital. You might not feel it is necessary, but it could wind up finding internal injuries that haven't caused you pain yet.

The most common types of injuries that might not present themselves immediately following an accident include the following:

  • Pain in the soft tissue of the abdomen. This can wind up being a very serious injury to an organ in the region.
  • Headaches could develop days after the accident, especially if you banged your head on the dashboard or the steering wheel.
  • Tingling or numbness could also develop days later in your hands or feet.
  • Neck and shoulder pain might also show up once the adrenaline wears off from the crash.

Car accidents in Los Angeles can be quite serious. Your health should never be taken for granted or taken lightly. You need to seek medical evaluation immediately after an accident even if you don't feel any pain.
